Tour of Shire Vienna manufacturing facility – May 2018
5 members of the Board of HAE Canada joined Elgiz Suezer, from the Shire global HAE team and Lindsay Williams, Shire Canada, for a tour of the Shire Vienna manufacturing facility. The tour for HAE Canada Board members was hosted by the head of site, Mr. Alexander Eder. The Shire Vienna site comprises of multi-product manufacturing facilities, labs, packaging, quality control and warehousing. It’s licensed by the local Austrian Health Authorities for the manufacture of plasma-derived and recombinant products. The tour included both fully automated lines as well as those that require human assembly.
The manufacturing facility produces all therapies for HAE, including Cinryze and Firazyr, and shipped worldwide. We were impressed by not only the size and scope of the Shire facility in Vienna, but also the significant focus on safety and quality.
